Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) Lucente impresses with a dark-tones yet shimmering purple-red. A lush, seductive bouquet offers silky impressions of raspberry and blackberry, both fresh-picked and preserved, followed by roast espresseo, white chocolate, and pungent hints of mint and sage. Warm and well-rounded in the mouth, it boasts supple, glossy tannins that are perfectly integrated into the structure, and an alcohol appropriate to a noble wine. A near-endless finale conveys tasty fruit, finishing with a pleasant hint of nutmeg. This wine is elegant in a thoroughly contemporary key. Blend of Merlot and Sangiovese.
